I hope someone who’s not on dialup like I am can find the appropriate video/transcript.
He’s had praise threads in the past, but tonight he damn near brought me to tears talking about South African voters lined up for miles in 1984 and the Polish Solidarity vote in 1989, and the importance of casting a ballot.
Thank goodness for DVR – I’ll have to check it out when I get home today.
Though I’ve tried watching some of his shows the past couple of weeks, since the last thread popped up regarding his monologue on voting, especially as an immigrant, and I gotta wonder: is he drunk all of the time or is that a Scottish thing?
I only had to watch Ferguson’s show once, and I have never watched Conan’s show since. Yeah, some of his stuff is silly and he gets a bit repetitious in his delivery, but he does usually have a “point” to his monologues, and he gets his point across with humor and a bit of an edge.
When Leno leaves in May, most likely Ferguson will be the only late night talk show I will make a point of watching.
